From Rocky Balboa

Not one of the most inspiring speeches but definitely one that’s easier to live by.

I recently watched Kabul Express, a Bollywood movie about the experience of two Indian journalists in post-Taliban Afghanistan.

Kabul Express

It was after watching this movie that I realised I didn’t know a lot about Kabul, Afghanistan or even about the Taliban. Wikipedia , as always, is where i got all my information from.

I’ve always found it annoying that a lotta people still think that back in India we’re still pretty backward. And that we don’t have any modern amenities. I’ve found it annoying that people still go by what they read in newspapers or watch on television. There is a lot more to a country than what u see in the news. Its always the negatives that are in the news, not the positive. It usually the thoughts and views of a few that are portrayed in news item, not the views/thoughts of the majority.

It is now that I realise that i’ve been as ignorant as the rest of the people. I’ve been doin the exact same thing that I’ve hated about other people.

I’ve made amends and taken one step forward to change this. I have learnt my lesson.
